You should see her pediatrician to have a urinalysis and a urine culture, and possibly some blood tests. to rule out any sort of inflammation of an infection. In addition, they may have her get an ultrasound of the kidneys to rule out a stone as a source for issues. In the meantime, there is a good bacteria in yogurts (called lactobacillus). I would have her try an eat yogurt.
